LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected an embattled family court judge's claim that an investigation that led to his public censure and suspension without pay was biased and the complaint against him was flawed.

The court issued a unanimous order Thursday saying it would be premature to rule on Clark County Family Court Judge Steven Jones' challenge of the underpinnings of the investigation against him.

The justices said their "extraordinary intervention" wasn't necessary.

But they will be expected to take up the question again - on Jones' appeal of a Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline order suspending him for three months for presiding over cases handled by a prosecutor he was dating.

Jones' lawyers have promised that appeal. They didn't immediately respond Thursday to messages.
